The artists selected for the exhibition developed their works in accordance with the proposed theme. We reaffirm the importance of shows so important to be able to happen in the Library Mayor Prestes Maia, as well as the excellent exhibition grounds, has a popular theatre, enabling the visitation of a large number of people, of students from schools and universities, to the general public, thematic library goers in architecture, bringing visitors knowledge by viewing the exhibited works, In addition to democratize access to culture in a traditional space of Santo Amaro.
The intent of the show is to provide the public with new creation and information platforms, Awakening and expanding further our understanding on relevant issues, as the racial equality. Art is a universal language, that has no barriers of creed, color and ideologies, and so is comprised.
I pay my tribute, transcribing here the final stretch of his well-known speech “I have a dream”, one of the great names of the struggle against racial segregation, Martin Luther King.
“In all the mountains, heard the Liberty Bell.
And when this happens, When we allow the Liberty Bell sound, When we let him sound in every room and every village, in every State and in every city, We will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old negro spiritual:
Free at last, free at last”
